Aleesha Koersen

I am currently studying creative and professional writing at the University of Victoria.

Millions of people have hundreds of things to say; my goal is find a way to tell some of these and my own stories through poetry and other exciting genres. My passions are communication and the exploration of different avenues of creativity.

Throughout my creative life I have dabbled in the worlds of photography, music, audio, textiles and design. At the present time, I am working with software engineers in the early developmental stages for new Chrome and Apple applications.

My professional experience spans from an after-school care provider to a business coordinator for an economic development corporation.

Before moving to Vancouver Island for university, I spent a short amount of time in Montreal, attempting to learn French. My small town Alberta roots are undoubtedly responsible for my deep-seated interested in community.
